This is an excerpt from Chapter 17: Fun for the "BIG" Kids....
A few years ago on our annual trip to Walt Disney World I spotted wee whittle girls prancing around Downtown Disney dolled up as princesses.
But these girls were fancy. It was the work of a professional.
Before long I had discovered Disney's Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. It's a marvelous place. A place that dreams truly come true if you are a Disney Princess at heart.
The first time we made reservations at the boutique we opted for the Castle package. This package is pricey (Approximately $200 with tax) but I feel we got our money's worth. It was also a birthday gift to my daughter from my parent's.
Grandparents are swell.
The Castle package includes everything but the kitchen sink. And you could probably get a sink if you asked for one.
We arrived and they asked my daughter what princess she wanted to be.
She said Cinderella.
They asked what size she was. And they wanted all the details. Her dress size and shoe size.
They returned with a costume, shoes, wand, tiara and the "Fairy Godmother" to lead my little princess to a dressing area. I dressed her in her new princess attire fresh from Disney.
Ever since we opened the Bibbidi Bobbidi can of worms we must make a reservation every time we trek down to Disney.
Because we now foot the bill, I insist the boutique is done "Mommyhood style". Which is on a budget.
To keep the makeover exciting but affordable I always bring a dress from home. To make it special I buy a pair of princess shoes or a new pair of earrings for her to wear.
This year we brought Gisele's dress from Enchanted and I bought these snazzy shoes for her.
So if you are worried about sanitary conditions, worry no more. They have little makeup kits for each princess.
Mommyhood believes in making a trip to Disney magical. I believe in treating my munchkins to experiences they will remember forever.
Bring your camera and enjoy. And try to resist jumping in the chair and demanding the princess makeover you always dreamed of for yourself.
You may scare the children.
Have a fabulous Saturday!
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique does not discriminate. They offer a VERY affordable "Knight's Package" for little boys. They give the boys crazy hair and it comes with a shield and a sword. The price as of now is approximately $15.00. A nice alternative to the Pirate Makeover which runs at least $50.00/child.
